Cucumber Dill Veggie Wraps with Coconut Wrappers

Cucumber Dill Veggie Wraps with Coconut Wrappers

My favorite organic grocery store to shop at here in Edmonton, AB is Earth’s General Store; they always have unique ingredients I cannot find anywhere else.  When I was taking Fundamentals of Raw Cuisine Level 1 through Matthew Kenney Academy, I was only able to find most ingredients required for the course at Earth’s General Store; thank goodness! 

One of my favorite recipes from the Matthew Kenney Course where coconut wrappers made from coconut meat.  I love a good wrap, but the only problem with making coconut wrappers is Thai Yong Coconuts are not easy to find in Edmonton, AB.  Young Coconuts were only available at an organic grocery store this year for a couple of months, so when I saw these Paleo coconut wrappers at Earth’s General Store I was so excited!! I knew I had to make something super yummy with these!

I purchased some fresh dill from the farmer’s market so I decided to make a dill mayo and add colorful veggies, and yum these turned out amazing!  I julienned some carrot, cucumber and red pepper, and then added sprouts and pea shoots which paired so well with the dill mayo.  The dill mayo is super easy to make; soak macadamia nuts and blend with seasonings creating a dairy-free creamy spread. 

Dill is actually on the list of the World’s Healthiest Foods!  Here are just some of the health benefits this herb hast to offer.

7 Health Benefits of Dill:

  • Digestion: the essential oils present in dill activate the secretion of bile and digestive issues.
  • Insomnia: the essential oils present in dill activate secretion and enzymes which have calming and hypnotic effects aiding in a good night’s sleep.
  • Diabetes: helps reduce insulin levels.
  • Immune system: prevents microbial infections throughout the body.
  • Hiccups: works as a sedative to help calm down hiccups due to allergies, hyperactivity, or nervous disorders.
  • Arthritis: helps to reduce the inflammation and the associated pain of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and arthritis.
  • Menstrual Disorders: the flavonoids in the essential oils in dill stimulate the secretion of certain hormones that help maintain proper menstrual cycles in women.

Perfect for summer, these wraps are so light, refreshing and easy to make!  The left over dill mayo is perfect as a vegetable dip and will keep in the fridge for three to five days.  Happy creating and thank you for reading!

    These look absolutely scrumptious! And I’m pretty sure you could convince anyone even those not opting for a healthy, vegan or raw diet to dive right in. They look so summery and fresh!

    Beautiful! I saw your post on Foodgawker and thought those wraps looked familiar! Amaranth (in Calgary) sells them too, they’re great! Beautiful post, I am looking forward to reading through your Matthew Kenney posts, I have been considering taking his courses starting next year!

      Aw, thanks! Yes those wraps are amazing, you should definitely get some! If you take the Matthew Kenney Course you will learn how to make them, the only problem is it is hard to find young coconuts here in Edmonton πŸ™ Let me know if you have any questions about the course!

        Yes I have made them before, actually. I gave up on the idea of getting into the MK Academy last year and bought all of his books to learn from for the time being. As I said, I am hoping to take it in the next year or so, and am so excited (SO SO SO EXCITED) about the new school in Thailand. Do you think you will take the other levels? You traveled to the States to take it in class?

          oh my goodness, your blog is insane! Great Job! I took the MK course online. I would have loved to go to Thailand but it was just not in my budget. I’m sure they will start teaching other levels at the Thailand academy, did you ask them?
